Now this is of major interest, primarily because, as stated in the press, “Every sound on this record was generated by the Yamaha CS5 monosynth, previously owned by Richard D. James” So the tracks, although more derivative of the vintage melodic electro variety have an unmistakable astral dream-scapey sound that you automatically equate with that lovable Ginger Cornish Loon. The amazing 'Curtainshttp' is worth the price of admission alone, a thing of wonder that manages to be both austere & playful. There's mention of Bochum Welt in the press, I think that's probably a spot-on reference point for this music which is intricate & intimate, like as intimate as you could get with the sound of Earth-bound singing robots. Stuttering, pooting braindance comes next in the shape of 'Radiator', one of the finest slices of retro electronica i've checked since these two (Solvent & Lowfish) collaborated on that cracking Vynalogica split years ago!! The tracks on side two flow from a brief inquisitive ambient piece into a dreamy slice of itchy moomin-style electro for the more cerebral dancer. Don't play the concluding 'Sandpaper' unless it's on a needle nearing the end of it's life. Solvent has helpfully numbered & hand-etched this track to cause maximum experimental chaos. A wonderful curiosity for AFX-loving nutters and classic electro fanatics alike!!
